Abuja (Precise Post) – The President of African Development Bank, (ADB) Dr Akinwunmi Adesina has said that times like this need audacious leadership.
“Leadership that is able to navigate complexities and restore hope and confidence, to grow back, safer, healthier and with greater resilience”, he added.
Akinwunmi disclosed this when he took to his twitter handle without direct reference to whether he was referring to Nigeria, African countries or United States.
However, Precise Post recalls that his tweets were coming at the same time with the tweet by the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode wherein he stated that “Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is a blessing to Nigeria. He has been before and he will be again. Mark it down today.”
Recall that there have been calls from different quarters for the former president Goodluck Jonathan to get ready to take over from President Buhari in 2023. Unconfirmed report has it that APC governors who visited Jonathan during his 63 birthday celebration were alleged to have advised him to cross over to the All Progressives Congress and pick the party’s Presidential ticket in 2023.
Political pundits are of the view that the former president is being lured into the 2023 race by the northern elites for the mere fact that constitutionally he has only one term of 4 years and after his tenure power will return back to the North since they region would not want to support a fresh southern candidate who might likely do two terms of four years each.
